Hello World by Hannah Fry

Hello World by Hannah Fry, book cover I managed to finish a book!

For quite a while I have been buying [real, paper] books once in a while, reading ¼, ½ or something, and then I've kind of left the book.

This also happened to Hannah Fry's "Hello World", which is about algorithms and how they are used/abused in our current world. But today I read the last two chapters!

It is not a technical book, but it does bring up a bunch of examples of bias in the use of various systems and algorithms today, that aren't immediately obvious, and I think it is worth reading for those.

It would have been fun with a little more detail in how these things work, but I guess that would have limited the audience.

Add comment?
